Americans for Public Trust got Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm’s internal agency calendar from June 2021, which shows that she met with Jules Kortenhorst, CEO of RMI (APT). Kortenhorst is a prominent figure in the fight against climate change worldwide. He is the chairman of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Net Zero Transition. He is also the founder of the Energy Transitions Commission.
Granholm had a private meeting with the head of the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), which financed recent research to explain demands for a gas stove ban.
A DOE spokesperson confirmed the rumor.
APT executive director Caitlin Sutherland indicated that despite calling clarion calls that the Biden regime was coming after gas stoves “ridiculous,” Secretary Granholm’s calendar tells a different tale. It has come to light that she coordinated her efforts to prohibit gas stoves with an anonymous lobbying outfit.
CEOs from American energy and electric companies met in June 2021 not to discuss appliances but to rally behind the newly enacted $1T Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which is responsible for creating thousands of jobs. The Zoom meeting lasted around an hour and was put on Granholm’s calendar with just Kortenhorst as a participant, and no agenda was posted. When asked for comment, RMI remained silent.
As Sutherland put it, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. The country must demand that Granholm and the green energy radicals leave their homes alone.
The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) recently made headlines for funding a study that draws attention to the public health risks associated with using gas stoves. In early January, Bloomberg published a report citing the findings and included quotes from a Consumer Product Safety Commission member who said a ban on gas stoves was a possibility.
In a tweet urging people to use electric stoves, Granholm also endorsed the study by RMI’s Talor Gruenwald and Brady Seals.
During the White House Electrification Conference in December, Granholm stated, “One important aspect of this is making sure that we electrify and create efficiencies inside the home environment.” Let’s all pull together now to ensure a future powered by sustainable energy is a reality.
